THIS IS A GENUINE 0 PREVIOUS OWNERS VEHICLE. VERY RARE THING THESE DAYS. HE ODD STORED AWAY FOR YEARS CAR TURNS UP THAT IS USUALLY OF THE DVLA AND THE FINDER HAS TO ADD ANOTHER NAME APPLYING FOR A V5. FEW TURN UP PASSED DOWN THROUGH FAMILIES WITH 2 OR 3 FAMILY MEMBERS AS OWNERS. HAVE NOT LOOKED BUT I BET A SEARCH OF EVERY CURRENT UK CLASSIFIED OR AUCTION AD TURNS UP ONLY A HANDFUL. OMETHING FOR THOSE WITH TIME ON THEIR HANDS AND I BET AT LEAST ONE LOOKS LOL. HAVE DONE MY CHECKS AND PUT THE REGISTRATION NUMBER INTO THE ITEM SPECIFICS PAGE AND IT. CLEARLY ON SHOW SO FEEL FREE TO DO YOUR OWN CHECKS.
I HAD THIS LISTED A WHILE AGO BUT DECIDED NOT TO SELL AT THE TIME. T HAD BEATEN MY RECORD FOR EBAY WATCHERS WITH 360 ODD AND STILL HAS 187 NOW. I HAVE RECENTLY ACQUIRED 2 RARE GM PRODUCTS. VX 4/90 FB AND A KADETTE L RALLYE COUPE SO THIS CAN NOW GO. SINCE LISTING IT I MET A FELLA IN IRELAND AT A SHOW WHO BOUGHT BOTH THE SUN HATCH AUTO AND THE 12500 MILE BLUE MANUAL THAT WERE LISTED SINCE I LISTED THIS CAR AND NEITHER IS AS GOOD AS THIS ONE. E PAID 3500 AND 3200 AND THE CHEAPER MANUAL ONE NEEDS THAT SPENT ON IT AT LEAST. T HAD FILLER EVERYWHERE INCLUDING THE BULKHEAD. OORS. EAR QUARTERS. ILLS. INGS IN FACT I THINK THE ROOF WAS THE ONLY PANEL THAT DIDN. . IT. THAT TIME OF YEAR TO FIND THAT WINTER PROJECT. AM NOT SAYING THIS IS A PROJECT CAR UNLESS YOU WANT TO RESTO MOD IT. HATEVER YOUR PLANS FOR IT YOU WILL NOT NEED TO SPEND YONKS WELDING IT BACK TOGETHER. R SEARCH FOR NEW PANELS OR GIVE IT A FULL REPAINT. T WOULD BE VERY EASY TO HAVE A MINT CAR COME SPRING.
I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH THE CAR BEING BOUGHT FOR A RESTO MOD EITHER. DON. UNDERSTAND PUTTING STIPULATIONS IN ADS. BUYER IS GOING TO DO WHATEVER THEY WANT ONCE THEY ONE IT REGARDLESS. ITH IT. BIGGER GEARBOX TUNNEL. EEDING NO WELDING AND NO SUNROOF IT. A PERFECT CANDIDATE AND HAVING OWNED A MODIFIED ONE YEARS AGO I KNOW HOW GOOD THEY ARE WHEN DONE PROPERLY. FOR THOSE THAT WANT A SHOW CAR ORIGINAL IT IS ALSO A PERFECT CANDIDATE WITH IT. 1983 DATE STAMPED ORIGINAL WINGS AND FOR THOSE LOOKING FOR AN EASY TO DRIVE EASY TO MAINTAIN CLASSIC FOR REGULAR USE IT SUITS YOU TOO. T. ON THE BUTTON AND DRIVES VERY WELL AND I HAVE REPLACED THE AGING TYRES WITH A SET OF 4 NOS FIRESTONE 165/70 TYRES I HAD STORED AWAY. I DON. THINK THERE IS A BETTER CHEVETTE OUT THERE AND THE ONES I HAVE SEEN RECENTLY ARE CERTAINLY NOT AS GOOD. br>HISTORYFIRST REGISTERED IN THE DERBYSHIRE AREA TO IT. ONE AND ONLY RECORDED KEEPER. I ONLY HAVE THE OLD PRE A4 SIZE V5 LOG BOOK FROM IT. ORIGINAL ELDERLY LADY DISABLED OWNER. T WAS BOUGHT THROUGH A DEALER I THINK BY AN IRISH GENTLEMAN LIVING IN THE MIDLAND UK FOR HIS FATHER. BIG FAN OF GM RALLY CARS AND SENT TO CORK IN IRELAND. HE GENTLEMAN COULD NOT GET ON WITH THE AUTO HAVING NEVER DRIVEN ONE BEFORE AND ON HIS FIRST ATTEMPT AT DRIVING IT SCRAPED IT ON HIS GATE POSTS AND IN THE PROCESS SNAPPED THE BRAKE PEDAL. N SHEER FEAR I WOULD EXPECT LOL. THE CAR WAS PUT BACK INTO HIS WARM DRY GARAGE COME WORKSHOP COME BOILER HOUSE WHERE IT LAY FOR THE NEXT TEN YEARS. IT WAS NEVER REGISTERED IN IRELAND AND AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE ITEM SPECIFICS THE NEXT OWNER WILL BE THE SECOND REGISTERED. THERE IS NO PAPERWORK HISTORY.
BODYWORK THE PAINT CODE FOR THIS CAR IS 23L AND DOES NOT SHOW UP IN ANY LISTS OF CHEVETTE COLOURS I HAVE FOUND AND I HAVE NOT SEEN ONE IN THE SAME COLOUR. T. A FANTASTIC BLUE METALLIC. THIS CAR WAS REPAINTED BEFORE GOING TO IRELAND BECAUSE OF A FEW OLD LADY BATTLE SCARS AND TYPICAL 70S/80. METALLIC PAINT FAILURE. SO ABOUT TEN YEARS AGO AND THERE IS NOT ONE SIGN OF CORROSION BREAKING THROUGH ANYWHERE. OT A BLISTER OR BUBBLE OR WEAPING SEAM. HERE IS SOME LIGHT AND COSMETIC DAMAGE BUT THAT IS EASILY FIXED. UST IS NOT SO EASY. ND HAVE YOU SEEN THE ASKING PRICES OF WINGS FOR THESE. 50 QUID FOR PATTERN ONES LAST TIME I LOOKED. HE WINGS ON THIS ARE EXCELLENT ORIGINAL BOTH DATE STAMPED BEFORE THE BUILD DATE. ERY LIGHT DAMAGE TO N/STHE DOORS ARE EXCELLENT SAVE LIGHT DAMAGE TO N/SSILLS LOOK TO BE ORIGINAL AND ALL GOOD SMALL DENTS TO NEARSIDE FRONTREAR QUARTERS ORIGINAL INCLUDING ARCHES. ITTLE DING BY BUMPER MOUNTROOF ALL GOODEXCELLENT ORIGINAL INNER WINGS AND RAILS WITH LIGHT SURFACE RUST IN PLACES WHERE ORIGINAL PAINT HAS FLAKED. OT PAINTED DURING RESPRAY BUT A FEW RUNS OFF THE WINGS ARE EVIDENT. ALL FLOORS ARE EXCELLENT ORIGINAL INCLUDING BOOTBUMPERS BOTH HAVE DINGS AND I THINK SHOULD BE CHROMEBONNET AND TAILGATE EXCELLENTTHE CAR HAS BEEN UNDERSEALED EARLY IN IT. LIFE AND I HAVE BEEN ALL OVER IT REMOVING THE SEAL FROM THE FEW PATCHES PATCHES THAT HAVE DRIED OUT AND LIFTED. ND IT. ALL SOLID ORIGINAL METAL. O PANELS OR WELDING NEEDED ON THIS ONE. NLESS YOU WANT TO TURRET THE REAR END. UST LOOK AT THE SEAMS IN THE PICTURES. HEY WOULD BE THE FIRST PLACE TO SHOW ANY CORROSION UNDER THE NEW PAINT. WELL 10 YEAR OLD PAINT. THE REAR QUARTER GLASS RUBBERS ARE TIRED AND THE SCREEN CHROME FRONT AND REAR HAS GONE BROWN. HE SCREEN RUBBERS ARE OK AND DO NOT LEAK. HE GOOD NEWS IS EAST KENT TRIM NOW SUPPLY NEW FOR THESE. THERE IS SURFACE RUST ON MECHANICAL COMPONENTS UNDERNEATH. UT ONLY THE SAME AS EVERY CAR OF THIS AGE THAT HAS NOT HAD THE POWDER COAT TREATMENT. HE FACTORY COAT WAS ALWAYS POOR. THE HEADLIGHTS ARE AS CLEAN AND BRIGHT AS THE DAY THEY LEFT THE FACTORY.
 INTERIORI CANNOT EXPLAIN THE RED CARPETS. HEY BRIGHTEN UP A GREY INTERIOR. UT I DON. THINK THEY ARE ORIGINAL AND COULD BE FITTED A LITTLE BETTER. PERHAPS THE LADIES PERSONAL CHOICE OR HER WALKING AIDS RIPPED UP THE ORIGINAL. O IDEA BUT THEY WERE THERE WHEN MY FRIENDS SON BOUGHT IT FOR HIM. HE REST IS JUST AS YOU WOULD EXPECT A 13K MILE CAR TO BE. O CRACKS OR RIPS ANYWHERE. VERY SLIGHT SUN FADING TO OUTER EDGE OF DRIVERS BACK REST. RIGINAL RADIO STILL IN THE DASH. PLEASANT AND COMFORTABLE PLACE TO BE.
MECHANICALSNOW THIS CAR HAS DONE VERY FEW MILES IN IT. LIFE AND HAD A TEN YEAR LAY UP AND QUITE PROBABLY HAD NEVER HAD ANYTHING REPLACED SO TO GAIN A NEW MOT I HAD TO FREE OFF THE FRONT CALIPERS AND WHILE I WAS AT IT FITTED NEW PADS AND FLEXI HOSES AND A CORRODED METAL PIPE. ERY UNUSUALLY THE REAR BRAKES INCLUDING THE HANDBRAKE WORKED PERFECTLY AND ALL THE BUSHES ETC ARE STILL DOING THEIR JOB. THE WASHER PUMP WAS NOT WORKING SO A NEW AFTERMARKET BOTTLE AND PUMP FITTED. OF COURSE HAVE THE ORIGINAL REMOVED PARTS TO GO WITH THE CAR. VISCOUS FAN. AN COWLING AND TRICO WASHER BOTTLE. I ALSO REPLACED THE NOISY WATER PUMP. UT THERE ARE 3 TYPES. I COULD FIND. NE VISCOUS FAN TYPE I HAVE FITTED AND 1 PERMANANT FAN. BUT NOT THE TYPE FOR THIS CAR  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br>IT IS CURRENTLY STILL CLASSED AS DISABLED SO YOU CAN. TAX IT TO DRIVE HOME BUT IT DRIVES VERY WELL INDEED. CAN ARRANGE DELIVERY UP TO 200 MILES IF NEEDED. HERE HAS BEEN A FEW LOW MILEAGE ONES FOR SALE RECENTLY AND I HAVE SEEN 2 AND LOOKED AT PICTURES AND DESCRIPTIONS AND THIS IS THE BEST AND THE ONLY ONE THAT HAS NOT HAD OR NEEDS WELDED REPAIRS OR HAD AT LEAST ONE PATTERN WING FITTED. RY AND FIND ANOTHER.
